Mens Threes played at home against Brighton at 10:30am. The Crows welcomed a much changed Brighton side for their final game of the season and made a strong start to the game. Borough's early dominance paid off after a superb Tim Porter ball found midfield dynamo Rohan Milne who played it in to the sprinting Albion Ayden to slot home a fine goal. Brighton hit back shortly after with it ending even at half time thanks to impressive defending from Justin Singleton, Graham Clampin and the outstanding Rory Pamphilon. The Crows continued in fine form after the break, keeping possession and moving the ball superbly around the field thanks to Matt Burns' and Joel Street's superb marshalling of the game. After another flowing move, Borough transferred the ball across the field to Olly Sanday and the tenacious winger put Sam Alker through to find the onrushing Matt Burns who lashed the ball home for an outstanding team goal. The Crows continued to play liquid hockey with Steve Valentine close to knocking one in, Crispin and Jacob Alker threatening a goal and Fraser Milne having a late effort cleared off the line. The game ended in a 2-1 win, a season best performance from the threes, gaining a well deserved victory against the 3rd placed league side. Player of the match went to the amazing team because of such a great all-around performance. The men finished their league in ninth place, a monumental ten point ahead of tenth place and only one point away from eighth place. Well done Mens Threes!
Ladies Section Friendly
The Crowborough ladies section played a friendly match at 12:00pm. A mixture of Ladies Ones, Ladies Twos and Ladies Threes players all came together for one final game to mark the end of a successful season. The game began with a goalie zulu where Cath Rawlings and Sam Williams ran from opposite ends of the pitch and floored one another to get the ball. Cath was sent flying and still had an absolutely incredible game. It was a very end-to-end game with some spectacular skills being shown throughout the ladies section. Goals came from Alice Webb, Amber Valentine and Michelle Hulse from the bibs team. Goals were scored by Rachel Valentine, Naomi Tear and Grace Mercer for the non-bibs. The game ended in a 3-3 draw and a trip down to the pub! Thank you to Lucy Smith and Sam Williams for organising the game and choosing the music!
